The book I was most excited about out of all six of these was the one I got for my birthday: Emperor of Thorns. I actually just finished it today and there’ll be a review up soon. I don’t want to spoil anything, but Jorg is up to his usual tricks in the last book in the trilogy. Othello was a book I ordered from Amazon because I won a $20 gift card in one of The Masquerade Crew’s many contests. I used to hate Shakespeare but I find that when I read it on my own without analyzing every single line I quite enjoy it. Also: Iago is an awesome villain.
The other books I received were either second or third books in series, but Wake by Amanda Hocking is a completely new book to me. I’d seen it on bookstore shelves previously but was waiting to find a paperback version to give it a try. I’ve read it already and let’s just say I have mixed feelings about it.
Well, that’s what I’ve been reading lately. So what have you been reading? Do you see anything you like here?
